Tasting Notes by Adelphi;
1 of only 291 bottles from cask no. 5873
Another single cask from the famous Breath of Angels series – an homage to “whiskies that cannot be named”. Old gold with copper lights and a good bead. A rich maritime medley: salt breeze, wet sandy beaches, seaweed and iodine. Bath oils, clean and super-fresh – complex and seductive. A big oily texture, very sweet to taste with more than a hint of green stick bonfires (very smoky). A wee drop of water increases the mineral influence: oils and salts and bags of smoke all enclosed in an old canvas tent with hemp ropes. A magnificent, traditional Islay malt.
